For more than a decade, Dr. Lubomir Serafimov—like his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather before him—brightened smiles in his native Bulgaria, only breaking family tradition when he and his family made the move to the United States. Today, Dr. Serafimov lends his overseas experience to Minnesotans, working with patients to maintain their teeth’s health and appearance. Along with family-dentistry services, the staff performs cosmetic procedures such as veneers and implants, which save patients from constantly replacing lost teeth with tiny marshmallows.
Armed with University of Minnesota degrees and the ability to spin hay into spools of dental floss, Doctor Ines de Llano attends to oral-health needs with a slew of dental services. With both dentists and oral surgeons on staff, the practice's services range from oral/maxillofacial surgeries to cosmetic treatments such as veneer and crown installation. The staff believes that preventative care is the best defense for maintaining a healthy smile; to further that aim, they supply each patient with individualized care regimens for home.
Midwest Dental offers a wide range of general care services for families and patients of all ages, as well as care for children, oral surgery, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry. Patients receive excellent care by friendly people they know and trust, in surroundings that are clean, comfortable & close by.
Dr. William Johnson II has tamed teeth through general and cosmetic dentistry for more than 36 years—two of which were spent with the U.S. Coast Guard in Boston. At Dentistry at Central Medical, he and his staff perform a variety of treatments and services, including whitening teeth, customizing dentures, and implanting crowns, bridges, and veneers. In particular, Dr. Johnson specializes in properly placing tooth-colored fillings and in gentle injection techniques.
The team designed its practice to respect patients' time and individual needs—the staff are always reachable, as the office's phones transfer directly to a cell phone or begin to melt if unanswered, and appointments can be quickly booked online. Each operatory is replete with a nitrous oxide delivery system and with the newest Cavitron cleaning equipment, which renders mouths immaculate without any gritty paste. High-tech sterilization equipment keeps all tools spotless, and air purifiers remove any airborne allergens.
With an advanced degree in orthodontics and TMJ treatment in dentistry from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry under her belt, Dr. Delia Dall' Arancio and Dr. Regina Blevins adjust smiles until they project even more smile. The initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and strategizing about a dental regimen, will set the course for teeth calibrators designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into alignment. Patients are encouraged to ask questions about their particular treatment, including how much peanut butter will be involved. For the toothy task of fang modification, you get $1,000 toward any traditional full set of braces priced at $5,700 or more or $1,000 toward any individualized Invisalign treatment priced at $6,500 or more.
Dr. Steven R. Hagerman wants patients to know they have options. On his website, he says that many people aren't aware of advances in modern dentistry that can "quickly, painlessly improve the health and appearance of someone's smile." Over the course of his three decades of dental experience, he has worked continually to keep up with these advances, outfitting his office with dentistry’s constantly evolving technology. Waterlase diode lasers replace harsh, noisy drills for minor tooth problems. The Wand computerized anesthesia-delivery system injects anesthetic at the same rate that tissue absorbs it, reducing the inaccuracy of shots given by human hands. And a DiagnoDent laser cavity-detection system locates tooth decay more accurately than older methods, such as visual exams or tossing darts at the client's dental records.
Twin Cities native Dr. Wallace Lunden continued his dental education after graduating as a DDS from the University of Minnesota, and he actively participates in dental organizations like the Academy for the Study of Dental Occlusion, the American Dental Society, and the Minnesota Dental Society. He tends to teeth with a full range of general and cosmetic dentistry services. In addition to preventing cavities with cleanings, the doctor specializes in keeping evidence of dental work a secret. He spruces up smiles with porcelain veneers, fits teeth with natural-looking ceramic crowns, and replaces conspicuous metal amalgam with tooth-colored composite material. He also applies Invisalign and ClearCorrect braces that stay out of sight like teenagers at family functions as they guide teeth toward healthier positions. Dr. Lunden runs a family practice, and he loves kids; he himself has four children, four grandchildren, and a wife who teaches kindergarten.
